    Keppinger once again can't get the ball out of his glove.

    Everyone on the board acknowledges that Keppingers defense stinks. If it`s overrated, it must be worse that stinks.

    You may be right.

    Keppinger may be the worst defensive shortstop I have ever seen.

    I think it's time to shut Cueto down for the season. Here comes Dusty.

    Dusty needs to just pull Cueto. He doesn't have his stuff tonight, plus Jeff Keppinger is giving the Astros runs by the inning.

    Maybe his arm is still bothering him, didn't they say that Volquez had been working through knee problems for some time now?

    So Cueto's ERA will finish above 4.80 - it's hard to tell how much better his ERA would be if he had just an average shortstop behind him. Still, this was a very impressive rookie season by Cueto. He's going to be a stud.

    I would've shut him down after his injury. His stuff was flat in his final four starts after the injury.

    5-1 Astros, with the bases still loaded. Adkins is entering the game.

    I would have liked to see more substantial improvement as his season progressed, I am not sold on Cueto under the present pitching coach and team manager.

    Agreed.

    I also thought Cueto tried to nibble too much keeping the ball down and in. He was throwing 94-95 and couldn't get a pitch over. His 2.2 innings showed 7 hits, 5 runs (so far) three walks. Horrible performance.

    Cueto did show great improvement in the second half. He posted a 2.77 ERA in in five starts in August, and pitched well in two of his four September starts despite not having his best stuff after the injury.
